    The greatest threat that faces the US isn't terrorism, or Russian nukes, or socialism, or Obama, or the new oligarchs........

    The greatest threat facing America is YOU!

    Polarization is the most dangerous threat facing our nation today. Political polarization, social, ethnic, you name it.

    A house divided can not stand.

    Obviously polarizing us one against another is a tool to make us the people weak so leaders that we despise can still manage to get elected. Divide and conquer. But the net effect is that it makes our nation fragmented, promotes conflict, erodes social cohesion and erodes the very fabric that binds us together as a nation of people sharing a common national mission.

    The bottom line is that as a nation we are no stronger than the bonds we share to our fellow citizens, PERIOD!

    Whatever your party, preferences, self interests, ideology, etc, all of that is secondary, tertiary, ranks last.

    If your first priority is anything other than finding common ground and uniting your will with your fellow citizens wills and directing that united will toward a national effort than you are far, far, far more dangerous than terrorism.

    We were too strong to ever be defeated by an outside enemy. But as our unity and cohesion fragment we are becoming weak, ineffectual, act contrary to our own self interest and worse of all enable a bought and paid for leadership that betrays us continually regardless of which party holds power today.

    In synopsis, the parties are the problem, if we subscribe to and support their "divided and conquered" agenda then we as a nation will fall.

    United we stand, divided we fall.

    Think about it before you post some asinine retort that means nothing.

    ~regarding Patrick Henry of "Give me Liberty or give me Death" fame.

    So are we just supposed to put up with the leftwing loonies who are trying to destroy this nation and fundementally change it from the way it has been known for over 230 years?

    No way man.... I plan on fighting the leftwing till the day I die.

    As far as I am concerned, we are being ran by a soft tyranny and I dont plan on going into the darkness quietly.

    Yes. The problem here isn't that there is some concerted effort from some mythical organization to drive a wedge between people in order to maintan that division, the problem is that the division is real.

    only among the loony extremes...

    if you ask most people what their goals and beliefs are, you'll find they're not as polarized as the loons try to make out.

    Maybe - but, that doesnt make the differences any less real, rather than constructed.

    What point????

    All I hear is dont fight it.... b/c it will just devide us if you do..... :confused:

    Its kind of like a rapist sayin "dont fight me, or Ill rape you".

    We on the right are just supposed to sit back and let the left destroy the nation I love?

    Sorry.... aint gonna happen Babe.


    The way I see it.... no conservatives are allowed to comment on this thread unless they agree with OP. Otherwise, they will just be percieved as devisive right?

    Why not tell the leftwing asses to slow down with all the America busting legislations?????
